Default saito 100 wont start?

i already spent 1 hour trying to start it. It keeps geting flooded. Do you guys think its the neddle valves. Because its constantly dripping gas out of the muffler.Any help would be great!

Could you be spinning it backwards?
It seems that if the engine is spinning backwards pressure will build up in the tank and push fuel out the vent (muffler) line.
Just a guess.. Good luck.

Is this a new engine and is it mounted on an airplane inverted - need more info. Make sure your glow start battery is charged also.

Saito engines come with the needles set very rich for the first 10/20 minutes of initial run time. I have had to leave the glow ignitor on for the first tank normally on a saito. I had one on a ucando which would flood before starting if I didn't clamp the line to my carb until ready to start.
